Taking advantage of and lying to foreign visitors

2 out of 5
by from California, USA
Posted Jan 12, 2017
Pros: The facilities were very nice and clean.
Location: The hotel is not on the beach, and it takes a shuttle to get to the beach.
I had booked a $450 room, and need to stay an extra half-day. Normally, the cost to extend for a half-day is 50% of the room rate, but I was charged $350 for staying 6 additional hours. The stated reason was that I was "upgraded" to a higher cost room, which was unverifiable. When I volunteered to spend the extra half-day in a different room that would have been in the original rate category, I was told they were all booked. I left the hotel around 930p that night, and it was very clear many rooms were unoccupied. My so-called "upgraded room" had a view of the hotel parking and entrance, not pool area. I paid more for a lesser experience, and was manipulated to pay extra for something that was not worth it. If you can avoid this hotel, I recommend you do.

Mantra is a resort not too near from the center of Punta del Este, but very near from "La Barra" with a lot of restaurants and Pubs. It has an incredible external pool (climatized), and unique infrastructure to enjoy your vacations. Has Kids Club, great SPA (with indoor pool and jacuzi), and very good restaurants with classic meet from Uruguay and mediterranean options too. One of the bests hotels of Punta del Este to enjoy.

Nice hotel...absolutely NO customer service!

by from Ohio
Posted Nov 21, 2013
Pros: The pool
Cons: Some customer service!!!
Location: Not too much around it. really need a car or bike. Can walk to beach
The entire time we were there I counted only about 40 total people staying there. With that number of people I thought the service would have been exceptional - quite the opposite! My husband was at the pool and ordered a beer. After waiting for it for 30 minutes he left. My daughter and I wanted to eat lunch by the pool. we were seated at a table and waited 15 minutes for a menu. We were the ONLY ones there. Uruguay uses the US dollar. I bought a Coca Light and paid with a $20. The bartender gave me $4 dollars back. I asked him when the price went from from $5 to &15 for a drink he said, "oh, did you give me a twenty?" When we checked in we were given a "free" drink coupon. My husband tried to use it and he was told that was only good for Champagne so he said great I'll have a glass. He was then told they didn't have any. I asked the manager if they were understaffed and he told me no. He wasn't at all interested in our experience at his hotel!
